Winemaker Stu Marfell on winning gold with the Sauvignon Blanc vines he planted as a teen

Stu Marfell, winemaker of Dashwood Wines, grew up down the road from the Vavasour winery. Now, he's using the fruit from some of the Sauvignon vines he planted during his school holidays as a teenager to make the Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc that picked up a Gold award at the Marlborough Wine Show 2020. We spoke to Stu about how best to enjoy the award-winning drop, and his life in wine.
